This school is moving forward in a positive manner. It has grant winner teachers in its primary grade and there are National Board Certified Teachers in PreK, 1st and 3rd. All of this is key in providing a high quality education; which is happening here!

This is a post in response to the first parent review. The year she is talking about there was a new principal, new assistant principal, and several new teachers.
